Pacer Boland says he learnt lessons from India ODI
Rookie Australian paceman Scott Boland got his first taste of international cricket with a sound thrashing from the Indian batsmen in the first ODI but still insisted that he learnt valuable lessons from his debut match which the home side won by five wickets.
Boland made a bright start to his international career, conceding just 12 runs from his first four overs in the opening match of the ODI Series at the WACA Ground in Perth on Tuesday.
From there it went pear-shaped, with Boland finishing with 0/74 from 10 overs. His last two overs -- the 48th and 50th of the innings -- were particularly costly as India peeled off 30 runs to finish at 309 for 3, with opener Rohit Sharma (171 not out) doing bulk of the damage.
